Release Date:06/03/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing. 25 year old, Howard County, Maryland native, Brandon Perry also known as K.A.A.N. (pronounced Kon) has the talent and qualities to once again write a new chapter in the rap instruction manual. When your moniker is an acronym for "Knowledge Above All Nonsense" (K.A.A.N.), hip hop is going to hold you accountable. Accountability and credibility are not only evident in K.A.A.N.'s music, but equally obvious in his work ethic and output. In a short time span, as he has been honing and developing his craft in real time, the rapper has organically amassed tens of thousands of followers across numerous social media platforms. Some of the biggest names in the industry have extended admiration and support of K.A.A.N.'s movement. Cosigns from Chuck D, features on NPR, and regular performances on both US coasts are among the many stripes the newcomer has earned. His vinyl debut entitled Uncommon Knowledge on Redefinition Records adds another notch to his belt, in that K.A.A.N. had the honor of working exclusively with legendary music producer K-Def (Real Live, LL Cool J, Ghostface, Diddy) for an entire EP. Listening to him rhyme may remind an experienced hip hop head of rap's greats and while K.A.A.N. respectfully gives credit where due when speaking of his influential MC's, he attributes just as much of his inspiration to his fandom and study of artists from other genres including Nirvana and Johnny Cash. The old saying goes, "Knowledge is Power", yet for such a popular catchphrase, common sense is still arguably uncommon. Leave it up to K.A.A.N. to take intelligence from rarity to readily available for the masses.;Track List:1. Intro;2. Music;3. Warning - Interlude;4. Perspective;5. Dope;6. Be Strong - Interlude;7.
